Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Application development is very rapid. A lot of code gets reused while building the applications, which is something we highly appreciate.""When our clients automate the KYC and onboarding processes, they can reduce their manual force and then deploy them in much better tasks rather than the mundane activities of selecting forms and gathering information.""Scalable and stable BPM software with a powerful case management feature. It also has good workflow.""The solution is operating well overall.""Pricing is a little on the high side.""The solution has very helpful technical support.""The solution is able to support the size and scale required.""Pega BPM's most valuable feature is the use of CDX to solve problems."

"It is low-code. We are able to go in and create apps quickly. It is very helpful for the size of our company. We're a mid-size company, and at this moment, we don't need anything externally. We don't have to go out and consult a consulting firm to build something from the ground up. So, the ease of that and being able to get development quickly up and running has been good for us."

Cons
"The workflow automation can be slow, so there is room for improvement there.""The initial setup takes time.""The previous versions had good training documents but the updated versions need to improve the documentation.""The way the IDE works with the chatbox and the taxonomy imports could be a little smoother.""The main problem with Pega is that it is quite complex, so it is very difficult for the developer to learn.""We have experienced a few technical challenges, particularly triggering the workflow through file drops and accessing files.""The cost of licensing could be improved.""Pega BPM could be improved by including token-based authentication and extending its integration options."

"Its UI needs improvement. They should improve it and make it a little bit more modern. We should also be able to have more real-time information that connects with other software platforms. It has an open API, but it doesn't always connect with some of the other platforms that we would like to utilize. These are probably two of the biggest things for us, and hopefully, they will keep ensuring that in the future, they continually build QuickBase to be a little bit more efficient in that regard."

Pricing and Cost Advice

  • "It is probably about 300 per license per person. There is just the licensing cost. There are no additional costs."
